to "the ed show" from new york. president obama is set to launch an offensive to save 9 8% of americans from a republican tax increase. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> we should not hold the middle class hostage wild we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on and that's to keep middle class taxes from going up. >> preserving tax cuts for the middle class. tonight chris van hollen and jan schakowsky and the latest on the fiscal cliff. >>> the meeting with the president looks good for progressives. we'll get the scoop from james hoffa. >>> plus breaking news. republicans running the benghazi witch hunt remain disturbed and troubles. >> i'm more disturbed and significantly troubled. >> i'm more troubled. >> joan walsh on today's big meeting with susan rice. >>> and yesterday ricks rolled fox news. >> i think that the emphasis on benghazi has been extremely political because fox was operating as a wing of the republican party. >> today fox news strikes back. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. the white house is keep
to default on its loans. this he were not going to raise the debt ceiling, remember. president obama responded in a prime time address to the nation. he asked the american people to get involved in that fight he was having with the republicans. he asked the american people to get involved directly. >> the american people may have voted for divided government but they didn't vote for a dysfunctional government. so i'm asking you all to make your voice heard. if you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of congress know. if you believe we can solve this problem through compromise, send that message. >> let your member of congress know. send that message said the president. the american people did. so many american people did that congressional websites and phone lines crashed after the president's speech. house phone circuits were so overwhelmed that an alert went out to members of congress that if they were expecting any really important phone calls therks shou they should try using a different phone. if you tried to visit the websites for john boehner or m
, and it turned out very poorly, very quickly, and it never got better. well, today president obama stepped into that particular page of the history books, when he he would his first press conference after being re-elected. he waited longer than any of his modern predecessors to hold the first post-re-election press conference, was he did follow the tradition when he convened the press corps today, and he did so in the midst of the controversy over the sudden resignation of his cia chief, who's also the former commander of the iraq war and the afghanistan war. the highest profile military and intelligence figure in the country. so david petraeus' old job of running the cia is now suddenly an available job in this administration and the same scandal that created that vacancy at the cia has also now touched the current top u.s. commanding general in afghanistan, whose successor for that job is due to have his confirmation hearings in washington tomorrow. well, today at his first post-re-election press conference, the president largely deflected questions about who he would be appointing to al
americans at work today than obama does. i would rather have his recovery and all the revenue that flows from that. if you grew 4% a year instead of 2%. the difference between growing from 4% instead of 2% is $5 trillion in additional revenue to the federal government. nobody is talking but raising taxes $5 trillion. why not focus to reduce rates, have lower taxes, it to get more growth. you actually net more additional revenue. >> it seems like john boehner is now willing to get that revenue not just from the economic growth that is not scored by the congressional budget office but through eliminating loopholes and deductions in a way that is revenue positive, not neutral which is what the pledge and has to be. >> they took his willingness to have revenues from growth. they said now he has agreed to tax increases. they blow up the negotiations. they did not hear very well. what happens now? i think that obama is very focused on his reelection. i do not think he looks around the country and notices that 30 states have republican governors. he has been a tremendous asset set to the modern
who said his job was to see that obama is never reelected. but did not happen. so, he has an edge year. he does have leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> mitch mcconnell is on the record as saying that he knows that the election makes some people think that the republicans are going to roll over. agreed to democrat demands that a hike taxes before the end of the year. that does not sound like compromise. >> your definition of compromise is rolling over and excepting higher tax rates. that is the democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest bias. the president ran -- i will say it -- the most negative campaign. he did not run on his record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there is one thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax rate on two percent of the population by four points? that is the smallest mandate in american history. >> can i say a vicious truth? -- what the republicans will agreed to, john boehner came out the day after the election with a peace pipe. liberals have difficulty understanding th
to go over so-called fiscal cliff and president obama is still in campaign mode. in hatfield, pennsylvania, the president was demonizing republicans -- shocker. meanwhile, house speaker john boehner seems willing to negotiate, as long as it's in good faith. >> it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's accept to believe you for a handful of republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage because they don't want tax rates on upper income folks to go up. >> let's not kid ourselves. i'm willing to move forward in good faith. our original framework still stands. >> andrea: the republican leader mitch mcconnell said he burst in laughter when tim geithner outlined the president's plan. what's next? rush limbaugh and charles krauthammer want republicans to walk away and let obama own the mess. >> the best thing to do is back out of this and let obama and democrats have it and do what you want to do. that will happen anyway. i don't know about you, i don't want my fingerprints on this. >> this is almost unheard of. what do they expect? they think the republicans w
. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is s if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's what the county map looksnow. i'll go to 2008. if anything, he did better in coal country as you can see. and you see the blue goes away over here. romney did what he had to do. he ranthe problem is right here. it was margins inuyahoga plus underperforming with whiteey working class men in the auto belt here. these two areas also swing. and those swing for mitt romney as well either. he kep up the margins in his home turf but hehe swing areas. one of the interesting things about the s this stayed president. jefferson county with the president. washt
. but president's second term is secure without them. >> obama: what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another. >> mitt romney took more than 90 minutes to call the president and concede then he gave a short speech in boston. >> at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and posturing. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the work. >> two parties will have to come together quickly because we face falling off the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. john boehner will give a speech at 3:30 eastern today. his office says that statement will talk about finding common ground, growing the economy and lowering the debt. we're back with more steph and celebration after the break. stay with us!

who says that barack obama is really a conservative. he says the rebel guns are radical and obama is really a conservative in terms of the things he advocates. i would say there is a conflict that is going to be exacerbated, and there will be a lot of tension between two things. one is the biggest influence of the tea party and their supporters has come from defeating republican incumbents in the republican primaries. for example, this year, richard lugar was defeated by mourdock in indiana. if richard lugar had been read- nominated by the republicans, that race would have totally disappeared. there would be no news stories about it, it would have totally disappeared. instead, a person was nominated who was -- who defeated lugar was a key party person who said his idea of compromise was the democrats coming over to his point of view. in missouri, i have to admit clear macaskill is a very clever politician, and she did spend $2 million of her own money to get todd akin the republican nomination. if what used to be called the republican establishment was more on their toes, they wou
the latino community. -- that espoused issues that benefited the latino community. host: mr. obama beat mr. romney by 58% to 40% in florida, 87% to 10% in colorado, at 80% to 17% in nevada, and 60% to 31% in virginia. we will go to one of the swing state in this election now. -- a swing states in this election now. caller: i love the statement that he made about self deportation. absolutely right. that is basically what the gop party is doing, not just to latinos, but everyone else. it is basically 47%. one of the things i would like to mention -- i wrote this over 20 years ago -- we had 36 men in mexico who controlled 54% of .exico's gross national product how much can they need to buy? i am sick and tired of the 36 men in mexico -- the number of men in the united states, canada, central america, south america, europe and asia, etc., whose lust for more greed and power is destroying the e ntire planet for man and beast. that bothers me. i feel that they spend their lives living off a bus. as long as we obey their roles, everything is ok. -- off of us. as long as we obey their rules, every
a deal." mr. obama should hang tough declaring himself willing if necessary to hold his ground even at the cost of letting his opponents inflict damage on a shaky economy. stand your ground and don't give in to threats. no deal is better than a bad deal. ruth, who is going to blink? >> i hope it really doesn't get to that. paul krugman has a nobel prize in economics and i don't. but it doesn't all hit at once. but a lot of it hits and the damage to the sort of animal spirits of the economy, the confidence of business leaders in the economy, the confidence of other countries in our ability to get our economic fiscal house in order would be damaging. so no deal is a very bad deal for the united states. somebody is going to blink in the end. i hope it's actually both sides to some extent. but the argument that you're hearing from some sectors of the democratic party that going over the fiscal cliff isn't such a bad thing, i'm not with that argument because i think you go over the cliff and you don't have a rip cord and your parachute doesn't open and boom. >> when you look at the numbe

the intelligence community. there could be some substance to the plan that president obama plans to nominate her for secretary of state. she will meet with other lawmakers later this week. president obama has been unwaiving in his support of her calling republican attacks on her outrageous. >> according to official announcement, the president of mexico and the president plan to talk about economic development and bored concerns. while there is no second sit down scheduled for the president and congressional leaders he did speak to john boehner and harry reid over the weekend about avoiding the fiscal cliff. the president will meet with small business owners today. tomorrow he meets with middle class americans who would be affected by tax hikes and more business leaders. friday he's going to travel to hatfield pennsylvania where he will give campaign style remarks to get support for congress to negotiate the right kind of deal. we are back with more steph after this. ♪ [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ >> yahoo, it is the "stephanie mill
real limiting. when you look at barack obama's first meeting with angela merkel in london when the global economy was on fire is interesting. she laid down the gauntlet. we are not going to play by your rules. we are not going to spend like you are telling us to do. it has been interesting as a superpower to look at all limits we have even influencing a nation like germany. and yet brussels i asked to you think america has the same growth we once had that could influence the international system? i would love to see how you see the challenges ahead in at geostrategic context? >> i think a strong economy is critical to u.s. national security, strong military. in this post financial crisis era, economics and finance are every bit as important as traditional diplomatic and military levels of policy. using the word throw away, a measure of how much nuclear megatonnage could be delivered, i think we have moved from an era where the measure of the nation's strength or vulnerability to an era where sovereign interest rates were a measure of strength or vulnerability so the move from t
report shows solidly for president obama. they did as well with hispanics as reagan the outcome of this election would have been different. between the 2,002,010 census, asians were the fastest-growing ethnic group in the country and in this election they also voted heavily for the president. african-americans are a very slow growing demographic group at their turnout did not decline this year and they gave more than 90% of their vote to the president. so while democracy is not destiny, it is certainly important. demographer joel kline ken says democracy -- demography is the best friend they have. scanlan then wattenberg talked about the key to vote in 1972. in the selection women were 53% of the electorate and they voted solidly for obama. men voted for romney. white, black and hispanic women were more democratic than white, black and hispanic men. the gender gap lives in 18 percentage points. women ohio voted for obama and women, men in ohio voted for romney. the marriage gap was a whopping 41 points with married voters decidedly republican in this election and the rowing grou
would president obama want to put her out there if she has confirmation hearings? they'd gotten away with the lies and cover-up. the mainstream media ignored it and moved on. people not only are going to ask about benghazi, who told you to do this, why are you and not secretary clinton go out? now they're going to talk about the bombings in east africa in 1998. to me it's political suicide. it will cost too much political leverage that obama needs to spend elsewhere. >> sean: what are we to make of this? especially when i look at the words used prior to these embassy bombings, richmond, what do i see? the embassy was warned. washington, quote, was alerted to the embassy's extreme vulnerability and called for assistance. i mean, so very similar to benghazi, and assistance denied again. >> well, in both cases assistance was denied. i think in the august 7th, 1998 bombings, which killed 228 people, and injured more than 4,000 bombings, including two u.s. diplomats. the benghazi attack involved almost 100 people. some of them wearing after fan clothes, according to libyan intelligence, u
the bailout. 75% of those people said they voted for president obama. i think it was very, very large. even the republican analysts looking at the vote today, one of the things they have pointed to are some of the smaller counties, particularly up in the northwest part of the state. you know, where romney first raised this issue about ten days out from the election about whether jeep was moving to china. those areas, they underperformed compared to what they had done in 2004 when they won, particularly by doing very, very well again in some of the smaller counties around the state and the ones where they didn't do as well, counties with a significant auto industry presence. >> right. i'm curious, joe, in the last hours or days i should say that ad of the romney team saying jobs shipped to china, the president along the stump made a comment about revenge and some people including romney and ryan tried to say to people, this is about the love of country, not about revenge, but i couldn't help but to wnder about the people, the men and women in the state who have a job as a result of the auto

friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as a result of economic growth. in other words, we won't legislate changes in taxes. we'll hope that revenues go up. he's saying no, that won't work for me. you're not going to legislate spending cuts. this is the president talking. not legislate revenue changes as well. >> bill: all right. so there are -- the most immediate decision maybe facing the congress is that as you point out, all of the bush tax cut

[ bell ringing ] there is that n. did you see this, he got in a spat about why he was having a press conference instead of going to the committee meeting where he would get the information that he was screaming for. >> here he is screaming a
happen in washington is we are going to start learning which senior members of the obama administration really only wanted to serve one term. is hillary clinton going to leave as secretary of state? is eric holder going to leave as attorney general? is tim geithner going to leave as secretary of treasury? the speculation is officially hot and heavy in washington as to who will stay on, who will leave and, of course, who will get the jobs of the people who do leave. everybody in washington is also now figuring out how they are going to work with president obama for another four years. how the politics of him earning a second term affects what he wants to do and how likely it is he is going to be able to do it. it probably was not an auspicious sign for that process when the president, right after his victory speech on tuesday night, right after he was done speaking, as soon as he was done speaking, the night he wins a second term, after he gave that speech, he got on the phone and he tried to call the republican leader in the house and the republican
for combat, barack obama takes the field against the very forces who fought to cut him down. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on taxes. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in the 21st century. he's backed by a majority of the american people, indeed re-elected as the only democrat since civil war with two majority elections behind him with an undergraded mandate at his back. today he marched onto the field of combat against an uncertain foe. some ready to deal, others hiding in their bunkers waiting for something, anything, to save them from the terrifying sight of 21st century electoral reality. i'm joined by dee dee myers, former clinton white house press secretary, and david corn, the author of the ebook, "47 percent." today the president stressed he's willing to compromise to avoid the consequence of going over that so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year. however, he said he's sticking to his guns, that the wealthiest need to be asked to pay a bit more. let's watch. >> i want to be clear,
robust oversight of the obama administration. >> i am sure he has. speaking of oversight that is one of the few places on the senate side where they -- no, speaking of government -- homeland oversight? >> tom carper is set to take over that panel. joe lieberman is retiring and susan collins, the ranking republican, is term limits it out, as we were talking about what the house of folks. senate republicans have that same rule. it looks like it will be tom cole born -- tom coburn. he has a reputation for being a finger in the i kind of guy. but he has actually been very serious and a talented group of people work for him on the committee doing investigations and what not. carper is a pretty conciliatory guy. i actually think they will get along pretty well. and both of them will likely be focused on the government affairs part of the committee -- homeland security. i am sure they have a particular interest in that particular subject area. >> what other top seats are changing hands? >> another big one is budget committee. kent conrad is also retiring. patty murray is up for that seat. w

are finally finished, it might even be up four. in addition to the size of that increase hamas obama got an even bigger vote among host: if you want to join in on this segment, we are talking with the los angeles washington bureau chief about polling numbers that make up of the electorate that came out on tuesday. >> mr. louder will answer all your questions about the make up of the electorate. i want to focus on party identification. the electorate was 38% democrats, republican 32% and independent or something else about 29%. is this now a democrats controlling -- being the majority of folks who come out? guest: yes and no. it's really important to make a distinction between party i.d. how people identify themselves when you ask which party do you belong to and vote behave yor. they're related things but they're different things. and there was a lot of confusion about that during the course of the campaign and a lot of arguments about polls because people were mixing up those two things. you've got a country that is very closely divided between democratic voters and republican voters. s

developments coming just two hours away from president obama's first news conference since his re-election victory. a moment when an incumbent about to be sworn in for a second term would be expected to outline his goals and agenda but it's likely to be dominated by headlines surrounding two of the nation's highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >> and this morning nbc news is confirming a connection between general allen and jill kelley, the florida woman who
in this morning's "new york daily news." they write "president obama claimed an election mandate to make the rich pay more in taxes, saying it is the will of the american people, making his first public appearance since his victory. obama said he would open talks with republicans next week on how to prevent painful tax hikes and budget cuts set to automatically take place effective january 1." we want to find out from you, your thoughts on the president's statement claiming that the election gave him the mandate or gives him a mandate on taxing the rich, agree or disagree. we've divided the phones in a little bit of a different manner this morning. 202-585-3880 for those making over $250,000 a year. if you're making between $100,000 and $250,000 a year, your number is 202-585-3881. if you make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, your number is 202-585-3882. and if you're making under $50,000 a year, give us a call at 202-585-3883. we'll have those numbers up on the screen. basically $250,000, $100,000 to $250,000, $50,000 to $100,000, and under $50,000. social media, the addresses are twi

? >> well, good morning, thomas. first of all, i think that you are going to see president obama get a number of questions about this situation. everything from his initial reaction to how this was handled by the fbi. so first to the point of his initial reaction, if you take white house press secretary jay carney's briefing yesterday as a guide that gives you a sense that president obama will likely talk about that fact that he was stunned. he'll likely also thank general petraeus for his service to the country and also express his continued support of general allen while this investigation is ongoing. in terms of this other big question that lawmakers have been talking about quite a bit, this question of when president obama was informed about the entire situation, i think that you will hear president obama essentially defer those questions to the fbi. essentially not question the fbi's handling of this situation. that is what i expect. anyway, thomas, based on carney's briefing that we heard yesterday. this is such a stunning situation, because, remember, this is the last thing th
, of the republican leadership to try to get back at obama, first for winning, and then for being able to have a successful foreign policy that was supposedly from the beginning his weakness, but which has turned out to be one of his real strengths. so, unfortunately, all of this -- this commitment to our patriotic togetherness and unity that we will govern this country across the aisles with bipartisan attention is being foiled, input president obama showed, as you said, rare, if you will, anger, a flash of real support for susan rice, and indicating he's up to the battle. that should he choose her to become part of his cabinet, he will put her forth with the full expectation that she will be vented in the ways she should be -- vetted, excuse me, in the way she should be without that rancor. you can be assure, the rancor will be following if she's nominated. this po >> lynn, you were there in the east room when the president was speaking. can you recall him being so intense, so passionate about an issue as he was then? >> that was a special moment, being in the room, you could feel the intens
don't know who else goes at this point unless it's obama himself. it's not like the white house is replete with people. make jack lou. i think there is a lot to be said for the white house and their position is going to be able to go through with tax cuts. you know, the middle-class tax cut's going to go through. the tax increases on the rich is going to go through. >> the president has the leverage. the gop accusing the white house of failing to put forward the specifics. are democrats saying we told you what to expect farce revenues, now tell us what you want. >> i think the democrats are really at this point just trying to play this game of chicken. i've just come from capitol hill just now. there was a press conference with harry reid and senator murray, senator schumer, senator durbin. i think what they're trying to do, this is a very high stakes game of chicken. they're trying to have the other side blink first and put out a detailed proposal they can then pick apart without having to do that first themselves. >> meanwhile we have republican congressman tom cole, one of th

to dean heller. it stays with him. and while president obama carried 28 states last time, he carried 26 or 27 states this time, depending on how florida goes. that means republicans did lose everything else, but got back indiana and also north carolina. so it was not a totally hopeless night for republicans. also, hey, remember the crazy thaddeus mccotter seat in michigan, where thaddeus mccotter screwed up and they had to run this reindeer herder, santa claus impersonator for the seat, a guy whose own brother says he's crazy. that guy won. the shirtless reindeer guy won. so the republicans have him. big picture in the house, thanks mostly to redistricting the republicans were not in danger of losing the house, and they didn't legal cause it, even though the republican majority appears to have shrunk there. and even though they did get the reindeer guy. but in terms of, honestly, of what went well for republicans in this election, that was pretty much it. it is a short list. want to talk about what went well on the other side last night? i'm actually going to pause for a second to give

that i talked about during the campaign. >> president obama spoke publicly the night that he won his second term when he gave his basic victory speech in chicago. thereafter, though, he did speak privately to some of his campaign volunteers in chicago. we likely would have never known about that or seen any tape of those remarks if not for the fact that the president, while he was speaking with those volunteers, he did something which he almost never does. he choked up and he started crying when he was thanking his volunteers. so that tape ended up being very widely seen. that was not a public event. today's remarks in the east room of the white house were the first time that president obama has made an official public statement of any kind since election night. you can tell that in part by the huge round of applause he got as he walked into the room. applause from people invited to attend the speech and a bunch of white house staffers who may have not seen the president and vice president since they earned themselves another term and ensured all of those white house staffers continu

the irony here is that obama and boehner still have no plans to meet themselves face-to-face. the two did meet before congress' thanksgiving recess along with the other two three members of the house and the senate. they had plans to meet again this week but still nothing is scheduled. it is not a great sign and shows that the two groups are practically incapable of working together. the last time obama and boehner tried putting together a big deal over the budget, that completely collapsed and this time around, the american people are getting less and less optimistic that congress will be able to reach a deal before the tax hikes and spending cuts kick in just 33 days. it is going to look bad for congress if they cannot get this done and some republicans are saying it's time to give in. politico's also reporting oklahoma representative tom cole told his g.o.p. colleagues yesterday to move forward with the president's he plan to extend the tax breaks for everyone except the top 2%. cole said that he does not agree with raisin
might be stuck. a senior administration official told us that president obama and john boehner had a phone wallace night and politico was reporting that the phone call was curt. they said on the call john boehner told the president to leave the tax cuts for the rich alone. the president says he doesn't want to do that. he's going to stick with his plan to raise $1.6 billion in revenue and if republicans have something better they should be specific now. eric cantor said republicans are already going further than they did in the same spot in 2010. >> we have done our part. we have put revenues on the table, something we didn't do two years ago during the debt ceiling negotiations. >> we've seen some positive developments in the last several weeks, in terms of what republicans have been saying about the need for revenue as part of a balanced package. the president will continue to make the case that that is essential. >> reporter: so both sides saying revenue is on the table, now the fight is obviously to figure out where it's going to come from, how the government is going to make m
this evening president obama will host the cast and crew of the movie "lincoln" for a screening at the white house. he is coming off a very important news conference yesterday. not only was this the first since his re-election, it was also the first he's held in eight months. several reporters did want to talk about the general petraeus scandal, of course but the president fortunately did get to spend a lot of time on the fiscal cliff which is what he was hoping for. while left room for a compromise by not taking a hard, red line on taxes he did say that he will not extend cuts for the rich. >> obama: when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> senate democrats are hoping he will stick to that claim and not compromise. with republicans they're asking the president not to cave in on talks over the fiscal cliff. those do start tomorrow. west virginia's jay rockefeller and iowa's tom harkin are passing
and this is "viewpoint." it seems like all sweetness and light at the white house today as president obama began negotiations with congressional leaders to try and back the economy away from the so-called fiscal cliff. or use a less popular but more accurate term, to try to keep the year-end austerity bomb from exploding and raining sharp freely on the u.s. economy oh. >> obama: our challenge is to make sure that we're able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground. my hope is that this is going to be the beginning of a fruitful process where we're able to come to an agreement that will reduce our deficit in a balanced way. >> eliot: once the meeting was over the congressional leaders all agreed that some sort of agreement was possible. democrats reid and pelosi were firm on the need to compromise and get things done quickly. >> we have the cornerstones of being able to work something out. we're both going to have to give up things that we know are a problem. >> we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction. we should have a deadline before christmas. before sh
that president obama won reelection >> there are some republicans who recognize they did lose and that new revenue new tax revenue will have to be part of any deficit deal. i noticed mitch mcconnell's talked about tax rates. he's going to insist that tax rates not go any higher. you've got the mathematicians trying to raise the numbers. you can exact the rate throughout a person's entire income. they're looking for ways to finagle this. republicans are going to have to retreat and they're going to get a better deal before the end of the year than going into the new year. >> i want to ask you about that, what eleanor said about the end of the year rather than going into the new year. who benefits, if anyone, if they kick the can down the road, get a new congress. isn't there something to be said with this new democratic strength coming into the senate? it's a little stronger there. you have a stronger president picked up a few seats in the house. doesn't kicking the can down until february or march and do something that's maybe a bandaid now help the cost. >> it helps to a certain extent, b

proposal by the white house and it is clear that the democrats and president obama cannot could not believe that the republicans would agree to this. so what is going on here? >> well, that's a great question. we are doing this kabuki dance now. obama put this proposal out there so that republicans would have a chance to negotiate with him. he started with this outrageous proposal and look at what we have been able to negotiate. $1.6 trillion in tax increases down to under a trillion dollars. something like that. but there is other thinking that the president simply is not serious -- but he that he wants to go over the cliff and force in 2013, early 2013, put forward after tax rates go up on everyone -- turn around and proposed tax propose tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less p year. and voting against tax cuts for the middle-class. it depends on where you said as to how you see these negotiations playing out right now. megyn: but the white house has maintained in private even to progressive groups, but it does not want to go out thecal cliff. if you believe that? >> it's hard to imag
